Sony to Release Detachable Cameras Lenses for Smartphones, Tablets

Sony has developed two camera lenses with 20.2 megapixel sensor along with Wi-Fi capabilities – named as the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 which can be magnetically attached to any Smartphone or Tablet to capture high quality images.

SonyAlphaRumors reports:

“What you see on these images are the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lenses. Actually these are not normal lenses! They have built-in sensor, Bionz processor, Wifi/NFC wireless connection and SD card slot. These lenses have no LCD screen and no usual camera controls. You will be able to control them through your smartphone or tablet (via WiFi or NFC). The lenses can be magnetically attached on your smartphone and it works on both Android and iOS devices. That is nothing like we have seen before. For the first time you can shoot top-quality images with your smartphone.”


No words yet on when exactly this intriguing gizmo will be available, but rumors suggest it’ll be soon. All in all, it’s a sleek little product that may be that little extra something to turn your iPhone or Android device into a much better camera.
